Robert Sorby Spiralling System South Africa

ROBERT SORBY SPIRALLING SYSTEM

TA-B330
Creating barley twists, spirals and flutes has always represented a problem for the woodturner. The Spiralling System (330H) not only overcomes many of these difficulties, but also allows the turner’s imagination to run wild as he enters a new field of decoration. Based on the same principle as the texturing tool, it is simple to use even in the hands of a novice - but still comes with instructions and ideas on further use. The built-in rest allows the work to be approached at a variety of angles - graduations on the rest ensure repeatability. The degree of off-set determines the pitch of the spiral. Another variation is introduced with the addition of three different cutters which can also be used for texturing. From these the turner can either produce amongst other works fine spirals on the stem of a delicate goblet, chequered designs, rope effect twists, heavy patterns on boxes, spindles or candlesticks as well as around the base. The 330H and 330S come with four cutters whilst the 320H and 320S are the same tool but with a single cutter (see table). It is also possible to up-grade a texturing tool to create spirals by the purchase of the tool rest (360) and an appropriate cutter. The Spiralling and Texturing tools are shown to full effect in the Robert Sorby Focus on Decorative Techniques DVD (RSDVDDT). If your requirement is for finer spirals we also have a micro spiralling tool (ref 370A). Also available unhandled for the Sovereign System.

Robert Sorby Captive Ring Tool South Africa

ROBERT SORBY CAPTIVE RING TOOL

TA-A805
Bangles, curtain rings and wheels as well as captive rings on goblets and puzzles are amongst the projects which can be created with the Robert Sorby Captive Ring Tool set. There is no longer a need to have an array of tools to cut different sizes of ring. The Robert Sorby Captive Ring set includes four different cutters to enable the turner to cut rings of 3/16", ¼", ⅜" and ½" from one inexpensive set. The ring cutter tips themselves are interchangeable and located in a specifically designed slot. This slot ensures that the cutter is correctly angled to create a perfect cut on each side of the ring. Together with the ¾" flat shank firmly located on the tool rest, this gives a full control. The cutter can also be angled for access to restricted spaces. Cutters are sharpened with a diamond stone, instructions included. Tools fitted with just one cutter and individual cutters are also available separately.
